    Interesting piece, Jim. I just cannot imagine *myself* ever going out on an occupational limb like that. I’d always be listening for the chain saw and wouldn’t have the time to create much of value!

      I hear what you’re saying. While I’d be listening for the chainsaws too, I have to admit, I spend a significant portion of my time now listening for chainsaws and watching as branches get cut out from under my friends.

      I’m not saying I would willingly leave my job for a job weaving baskets on the Gulf shore, more that I have finally begun to recognize that in choosing not to make the effort to broaden my stream of income and pursue additional avenues of income, I am essentially choosing to wait for the chainsaws.
